Take a picture to your local Timpson's. They genrally won't do it instore anyway. They'll be sent back to the factory and sorted in about two weeks.
It was about £45 for me the last time.

Had boots resoled with Vibram, boots now fit at least half a size smaller and are unwearable, is this a massive fuck up and cant it be rectified?

tried them on without socks and fit perfect (wearing uber thick socks today) so basically must have been resewn slightly wrong.
Other pair I had done are spot on though, im sure I can make do
not sure about wired etc they are clarks DB onto vibrams
they look canny though

Couldn't find cheaper
To be fair workmanship is excellent and service has been perfect.
The ones that are sized a little down had it have an inner sole fitted too that they did for free and they have offered to widen them a little totally at their cost.

I actually like them. Look better than with the crepe sole imho.
